It took twenty minutes and four cell phones just to get through, but we have a permit. Our current reservation is for November 5 - 7 on Trail #3, which is the northern route that begins at Kingfisher Landing, has overnight stops at Maul Hammock and Big Water shelters, and ends at Stephen Foster State Park.
We will meet again at the same place, same time, next Monday, to try for a permit for the November 12 - 14 weekend.
If we decide to keep the current reservation, we need to send our confirmation and fee to the Wildlife Refuge within sixteen days which will be Thursday, September 23.
